works. obviously the big story is the climate story and what happened in copenhagen a few weeks ago. i have been astonished watching the globals then after the copenhagen meeting. what happened there is perceived completely differently in europe than it is here and in utterly differently in india then it is in europe, so if you track the flow of blogs and columns that are coming across on this, the assessment ranges from catastrophe to success. my sense of the story is there were actually to copenhagen meetings. there was a formal treaty negotiation that has been going on a essentially since the united states framework convention on climate change was ratified by 190 some nations back in the early 1990's and culminated in copenhagen, and there was a very brief 12-hour head of state negotiation that took place at the end of the copenhagen meeting. the first negotiation, the formal one, failed. the second one, i will talk about that a little more in a moment but i want to give you some background to understand what was happening there. every discussion of international climate change neg
such as spike its coverage not just copenhagen but it is going up and up and it seems we're doing something right and that is because the staff is so committed to speaking to journalists were in the old days they would sit in the office and do research. they are still doing that now but now they are more willing to talk to the press and that makes me happy also be cuss number one, we have a tremendous communications staff is an honor to work with it is like madmen without the cigarettes and booze. we have a leadership from the first-rate bert -- board fell lets us do what we want to do just like bloomberg president and steve ross miami dolphins owner, and al gore and i can go on. third we have a president who, for years, has been telling our staff which is growing to communicate and do it well. it is great to be with you and our great staff. before i call up jonathan lash to speak just a couple of logistical things. turnoff yourself of. he will speak half of the times "60 minutes" then open it up to answering your questions. you have myself end jessica over there in the black will have micr
of the outreach, and the efact it's had. copenhagen in underreported story he arrives late and he wants an agreement with the chinese premier. but he makes a strong statement on arrival that the chinese have to allow inspections. the chinese are insulted as the meetings he scheduled with the chinese prime minister. the prime minister doesn't show up. he sends a deputy to the first meeting. then an even lower level associate to a second. same with iran, where obama is rebuffed again and again and again with the russians. he got nothing in return. you wonder how long this process -- and the promise always is well, we are planning to seeds, it takes a while. we have to relax america's image. when the world loves us again we get cooperation. it hasn't happened and you wonder how long he will wait. >> bret: a.b., his critics say he was naive on a number of decisions and a number of actions. do you think that the president has really grown or changed in his first year in office? >> the most interesting question as we head to next year is whether or not we will see heads roll, new chief of sta

-- they stay at a really nice hotel. they stayed at the marriott in copenhagen when they went to the climate summit. it was five star. it was $2200 per night. each one of the congressmen had a bill for $4400. now, that is obviously way north of what the average american spends even on their mortgage payments. and that was just for two days of fun over in copenhagen. >> it was guys and gals. there were republicans and democrats there. the total bill was $404,000. here to me was the most disturbing part of this is that when these members of congress were questioned about this kind of expenditure and using taxpayer money, many of them said they'd never seen the bills or the expense reports. isn't there an inherent problem in that? that, i guess, we have so much tax money from all of us to just throw around that nobody bothers to look at how much things cost? this is what henry waxman had to say about it, democrat from california. i was there because i thought it was important for me to be there. i didn't look at it as a pleasure trip. only problem is i think the average american would look at $

in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot
to the copenhagen for olympics i would begun shy this that's going to be -- he got secured today by david axelrod in the "washington post". he even says everyone is entitled to opinions not his own facts. he says you are dead wrong. >> i agree, facts are important. the fact of the matter is this administration last february put out a budget plan that said they wanted to double the national debt in five years and nearly triple it in 10. during george bush's years in office the annual deficits ran 2% of gdp, 1.7 of gdp since world war ii. this administration is planning using optimistic projections about economic growth projecting deficient it iss on their watch will run 5.1% of gdp. i wrote 200 words for the "washington post" on the democrats in congress. mr. axelrod while all these things are swirling around in the world proceeds to write 700 words attacking me on a subject i barely touched on which was deficit and spending which i talked about congress not the administration. i'm going to be responding to mr. axelrod and setting the record straight by relying on the facts on what this administra
to cut emissions. he had a real seat at the table in copenhagen, and this is the story that he's been spending much of his time on. but in addition we also talked about global markets. i asked him about currencies today, how he's investing and he had some interesting things to say about the valuations in the stock market. how do you see things right now in terms of the environment, globally speaking and in the u.s. right now? where are we in the cycle? >> i think that the collapse of the depression was prevented. the collapse the financial markets was avoided or the off the life support actually worked so the markets are now stabilized. the premiums have shrunk back to normal levels. so that's -- that's fine. and the economy has begun to move forward. but it's only moving forward because it's pushed by the stimulus and that's particularly true in the united states. >> reporter: what are your thoughts on the president's proposals in the banking industry? >> well i'm very supportive. i think it's a step in the right direction. because the banking system has to be changed. this idea of a

not only the grain economy but the climate change problem. the failure of the copenhagen meeting conference was not only partly a question the difficulties to agree on goals among the different players, but also behind this the fact that it is a huge amount of resources to do something attractive and, you know, people are talking about a billion a year figure when you listen to what has been said by the main leaders in copenhagen that you have 1 million plus one plus one in 1015, but so it's another magnitude if we really want to address this problem it is as big for the future of mankind as many say and i do believe is true there we need to find more innovative ways of financing and certainly from this point of view the input of of the imf may be helpful. well, thank you very much. i'm sorry to keep peace so late.

of the copenhagen meeting conference was not only a question of the integrity to agree on the goals and the different players, but also behind this the fact that it is a huge amount of resources to do something effect to and, you know, people are talking about 100 billion a year. that is a figure when you listen to what has been said and copenhagen europe 1 quintillion plus one plus one plus ten plus 15. so it's about the magnitude. and if we really want to address this problem as it has been for the future as many say to believe it is true, then we need to find more innovative ways of financing >> good evening. my name is leon, a fellow at agi and it is my pleasure to welcome you to this bradley lecture, the first of the new year and to extend a special welcome also to those of you joining us to the wonderful efforts of c-span. the next bradley lecture will take place on monday, february 8 when professor gerard alexander of the university of virginia will speak on the topic, to liberals know best, intellectual self-confidence and it claims to a monopoly of knowledge. it is for me a
on copenhagen, didn't really get a consensus going except yeah, we're going to have another meeting in a while. but you say enough of that poppy cock. it's time to move to plan b. what is plan b in your estimation? what should we be doing? >> plan b is what mankind has always done throughout the ages what mankind does in different parts of the globe at the present time where the temperature is very different in countries, very cold countries and what people do is they adapt. mankind is superb and at adapting and we are better now because of modern technology adapt to go whatever nature and the climate throws at us than we've ever been before. so that is what we should do. that is what we will do. that is plan b. the idea that you can get a global agreement on decor car -- decarbonization is poppy cook. even if you did, it shows you're not going to. the meeting later this year is a complete waste of time. even if you did get an agreement, the cost to the economy will be far greater than any benefit you would conceivably get. >> so you suggest -- we just keep using fossil fuel, carbon based stuf

and actually said just a few years ago, when he was in copenhagen, president bush said he wanted all these terrorists brought into america to be brought tried by a federal court. so let's do it. >> what do you think, congressman, of the way the obama administration is making these kinds of sensitive decisions, a year ago the president said to gitmo the prison camp could be shut down one one year. he's failed to meet that deadline and now it's open-en d open-ended. we don't know what's going to happen. then he said the trial will take place in lower manhattan. now apparently they have to walk away with this. what's your assessment of the way this administration makes these kinds of sensitive national security decisions, making promises and failing to deliver? >> wolf, you have a point, but i'm also disappointed in congress. those senators and those congress members that three years ago were calling for sitting down gitmo, but yet all of a sudden becomes almost at times a political issue, where is the courage? congress? so that the president would help stay the course. yeah, i wish th
is to have money in the short term. and clean energy technology. ron living is copenhagen. not much new here. rich get richer, poor gets poorer. the population of the u.s. suffers again and again and again. no politician be risk his position. jared says, people are so disgusted, long-term politicians are retired. among them, my state. buy ron dorgan, and fiscal responsibility is gone. and derek writes, it's too hard to understand the idea of the deficit. the best bet is to tie politician salaries to the deficit. watch how fast they fix the problem. few want to read more, go to my blog at cnn.com/cafferty file and go to yesterday's blog to find out how wrong i was then. >> remember ross perot? >> of course. >> he used to talk about that. >> and he got 19% of the vote. >> he pulled out. >> and then he got nuts at the en. he had martians landing in his yard. crazy. >> but he had good ideas. >> he did. no question. >>> jeanmy moose is standing by with a most unusual look. and then, only two hours away from the start of the president's state of the union address and more coverage after this. o gr
see yesterday the guy that drew the mohammed bomb was attacked in his barn in copenhagen with an axe and a knife. it's - you know i mean if you can't even draw a cartoon about mo' ham ed who's not god, it's ridiculous. have you ever showed the cartoon on c-span? you can't let these people control us. i think you should show it. host: we did years ago. it's been three or four years though. caller: i don't know. salmon rush ty probably still has a hide out. these people - the so-called muslims that aren't extremists. can't speak out against them because that's against the koran. they'll kill you. see what it says. i don't see a lot of people speaking out against the religion because they can't do it. it's scary. host: thanks for the call. front page story. obama ties al qaeda to the plane scare. the president back at the white house tomorrow. ben from north carolina. good morning. is yemen the new front on terrorism? caller: i think since the place is no bigger than it is, the town of whatever it is, i think we should blow them off the map because that's where all these people are
such as the u.n. human rights council. and most recently the copenhagen climate change conference. which demonstrated spectacularly the factualist of structures, the lack of common purpose, common interest and governance. the internationalist institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience with its repeated and doomed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers through naval conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact who's signatories incidentally included germany and japan? that abolished war forever. an absurdity that won the u.s. secretary of state frank kellogg the nobel peace prize of 1929. sound familiar? but at least kellogg got it for an actually signed useless treaty. [laughter] >> obama got it for the merely imagined useless treaties. most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the depth of obama's naive internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply unserious goal. the most dramatic
and he's in copenhagen where he lives. good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? >> thank you very much. let's go back to april 2009. you and your wife were traveling. she was booked on a window seat and you were on a middle seat and british airways was about to seat a minor child next to you. they thought wait a minute, the kid is not related to you. what did they say? >> it went a little different. i had been located on the window seat and my wife the middle seat but she was quite heavily pregnant and she wanted to take some rest and therefore wanted to sit at the window. >> right. tell us what the flight attendant said. >> well, the flight attendant, apparently it seems to be policy of british airways that i found out and also airlines that no male is allowed to -- is allowed to sit next to a child so he approached me and asked me to swap seats with my wife. at that point, i asked him why and he explained to me that it is company policy and i began to ask why and he said it seemed inappropriate and only then i realized what all this thing was about. also, he mentioned tha
